Re: Does anyone really know what time it is?

I think perhaps you have the right idea, but are missing the problem. Most likely, the GPS mushroom or the nema converter does not provide date. Virtually all 183 sentences that need it only have time. Position is dependent on time differences, not absolute time. So they didn't require date.

So more than likely, your MFD just simply used its date it had stored. Perhaps it's build date.

Any thoughts?
